Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme/feature created by The Broke and The Bookish. More information and bookish goodness can be found here!
It’s been a couple weeks since I did a Top Ten Tuesday post because I haven’t been interested in the last coupe topics. But I’ve missed it and it’s been too long so it’s back! This week I’m sharing with you ten books I picked up on a whim!
10 // Angelfall by Susan Ee
When I picked this up, I knew nothing about it. I’d seen it on Tumblr a few times and at the bookstore so I decided to get it and ended up really enjoying it!
9 // Sea of Shadows by Kelly Armstrong
I’d read the Darkest Powers trilogy by Kelley Armstrong so I decided to pick this one up and see what it was like though I didn’t really know what it was about. I liked it but I didn’t love it and am yet to get the second novel.
8 // Because You’ll Never Meet Me by Leah Thomas
I got this because it was about pen pals so obviously I needed it in my life but it took me a while to read it and I didn’t pick it up until I had no idea what to read. It was alright but it fell a little flat for me.
7 // A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
This was one of the first books I read last year and I picked it up because it sounded cool though I wasn’t sure if I would like it, but it was pretty good!
6 // Legend by Marie Lu
I’d seen stuff about Marie Lu all over Tumblr and Instagram so I decided to pick up Legend even though I knew nothing about it. I really enjoyed it but the rest of the trilogy put me in a slump.
5 // Denton Little’s Deathdate by Lance Rubin
This was on my TBR for months by the time I picked it up and I was a little wary because I haven’t seen anyone talking about it all but it was pretty good.
4 // Tonight the Streets are Ours by Leila Sales
I got this because I knew a lot of people love This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales though I hadn’t seen anyone talking about this when I bought and read it.
3 // Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver
When I picked this up, I hadn’t seen much about it and what I had seen was a bit negative but I decided to pick it up anyway and ended up really enjoying it!
2 // Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige
All I knew about this book was that it was a Wizard of Oz retelling and I hadn’t read a retelling before so I needed it in my life! At the time, I hadn’t seen many people talking about it though.
1 // The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
I was at the bookstore one day and I saw this and I was like ‘that’s a nice cover’ so I decided to pick it up without really knowing what it was about and it soon became one of my favourte trilogies!
There you have it! These aren’t really books I picked up on a whim, but I got them either without knowing much about them or without seeing people talk about them which is pretty whim-y for me! What are some books you picked up on a whim?
